Food & Wine Festival concert located on the Festival Field

In 1992, a trio of vocally talented women called SWV was introduced to the music world. 
The RCA debut, It's About Time, produced a string of top ten R&B hits including: "I'm So Into You," "Right Here, "Downtown," "Weak," and "You're Always On My Mind." This montage of musical success established the trio as a commercial force early in 1993. Teddy Riley mentored the group in honing their craft and sound and, as a result, produced the remix to the hit, "Right Here," which featured samples of Michael Jackson's hit. The partnership also produced another hit single, "Human Nature," which topped the R&B charts at number one and popular charts at number two. SWV earned 11 Billboard Music Award nominations for its debut album. 

In 1996, SWV returned to the music scene with another platinum album, New Beginning, which was preceded by the number one hit "You'te the One” and The Neptune’s hit, “Use Your Heart.”  

In 1997, SWV released its third album, Release Some Tension, which spawned several top ten hits including "Someone" featuring Sean ‘Puffy’ Combs as artist and producer; "Lose My Cool," a rhythmic duet of SWV and rap artist Redman; "Rain" a trademark torch ballad written and produced by the first album collaborator, Brian Alexander Morgan; and the Timbaland produced song "Can We,” featuring Missy Elliot, which was featured on the 'Booty Call' movie soundtrack. 

SWV has received numerous accolades from its peers in the industry. In 1993, the debut album received nominations for a Grammy, American Music Award and Source Award. The group also won a Children's Choice Award and a BET "Best of Video Soul" Award. 

In May 2021 SWV performed on Verzuz against Xscape. After performing to over 3.5 million viewers and garnering 1.25 BILLION impressions BILLBOARD declared SWV the winner. BILLBOARD also put SWV on their prestigious TOP 40 FEMALE GROUPS OF ALL TIME (ALL GENRES).
